Significant lag with so many images

February 28, 2013

Gridviews are the main layout tool you see in windows 8. They are the blocks of data arranged in a grid…sometimes even grouped into sections.

There’s a major problem when you use this grouping effect: virtualization doesn’t work anymore. What this means is that if I’m trying to display 8 seasons of episodes, 20 episodes per season, all with screen captures… EVERYTHING must load before you can scroll. And this is not acceptable. There’s a long pause. 😦

I’ve been using grouping to separate by season. But no longer. I’ve figured out an interesting fix that will still use season groupings without doing the actual grouping that breaks virtualization. It even works with semantic zoom.

Anyways, another delay but one that will be worth it.
